Tbilisi to host Classical Music in Alternative Environment festival
Four Tbilisi events will bring classical sound to venues that do not usually host concerts on December 6-14.
Launching at the Simon Janashia National Museum of Georgia on December 6, the series will open with German violinist Blacher and Turkish-American pianist Özgür Aydin.
In the second show on December 8, the Writers' House of Georgia will host Opera Camerata, a chamber group of artists from the Tbilisi Opera and Ballet State Theatre, as well as violinists Júlia Pusker and Eva Rabchevska.
Going back to the Museum of Georgia, on December 10, the series organisers will bring Canadian-based Vietnamese pianist Dang Thai Son to a Tbilisi audience before the closing concert at the Youth Art Palace.
The latter will showcase the Beethoven Academy Orchestra, a "leading Polish symphony orchestra of young musicians" (organisers of the series) led by Georgian conductor Mirian Khukhunaishvili, and Szymon Nehrin, a 2017 Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition-winning pianist, Agenda,ge reported.
